In the second term of the year, the total income has grown 100% compared to the same period of 2009 thanks to the increase of 102% in the number of passengers even though the total income of passengers has fallen by 1%.

At Barcelona’s El Prat Airport, Vueling has transported 80% more passengers than its immediate competitor. Moreover, the company has affirmed that Barcelona, Seville and Bilbao are leading as their main markets.
